Top Photographic Exhibition at The Hive

Some of the world’s best science photography is currently on display in The Royal Photographic Society’s International Touring Exhibition at The Hive.

The exhibition is the longest standing exhibition of its kind in the world, having been held almost every year since 1854. The Hive was chosen to host it in 2016 when thousands of people got the chance to view the collection of distinguished images.

The exhibition opened at The Hive on 8 February and is in situ until 22 March. It coincides with British Science Week (10th March to 19th March 2017) and to celebrate there will be a series of school workshops running at The Hive where children have been invited to investigate the theme ‘Hidden in Plain Sight’. The workshops will bring interactive opportunities for children to investigate forensics, pollen and sound waves, guided by University of Worcester staff and students.

In addition to the RPS International exhibition, there will be a series of smaller exhibitions on the Lower Ground Floor at the Hive – ‘Fragments’ by Mike Hallett and ‘A Nostalgia for Beauty’ by David James. These thought provoking images showcase the photography of academics at the University who are also fellows of the RPS.

There will also be a public lecture on March 14th entitled ‘the Science of Beauty’ which is free and open to the public, and between March 11th to 30th Tania March’s ‘Time Contained’ will be on display at Worcester Cathedral. This exhibition of figurative paintings explores the notion of pausing a single moment in time.

On Saturday, March 18th, the RPS and the University will be running a fun and informative project for families.
